    Colic babies

    Advertisements
    Is there such a thing as "spoiling" a baby while he has the colics?
    Giovanni has the colics and he cries no stop for hours! I just want to comfort him and try to see how to help him even when I feel so helpless but some people had told me that I'm spoiling him When is "comforting" him too much? if there is such a thing.

    At his age, no you cant spoil him. It will help him feel more secure in his new environment feeling his mothers touch.

    Check out this thread - I'm going insane.. Theres a ton of helpful info and ideas to help soothe him.

    The Happiest Baby on The Block techniques were a lifesaver for us, heres a link, try it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIft5...eature=related The way he swaddles the baby doesnt work for Carter, but try swaddling any way and it should be fine.

    I think you said y ou were BFing, try watching your diet too, it took me a while to figure out that anything dairy I ate made Carter super fussy.

    I know you didnt ask for advice But I started talking and couldnt stop

    When Wes had colic we put him in the sling. It helped him so much. That and laying face down along our arms, so that our arm was along his tummy. That helped too.

    No, no spoiling a baby under 6 months. The sling was the best invention ever for us. Babywearing is a way to at least have some mobility, baby is comfy, and you get more toned from carrying them all day.

    This phase will pass. Sounds like you are being a great Mommy.

    you can't spoil a baby that age.

    second, Dawson is/was really colicky and in my mind....whatever calms them down is fair game. I would try anything with Dawson, and if it bought me even just 5 minutes of peace it was well worth it.

    but i say again....you can't spoil a baby that young. they need your love and attention.

    My son had colic for the first 5 months. My Dr said find what makes him happy and do that. I ended up carrying him around most of the time. He rarely stopped crying but it was lessened when I carried him. So no I don't think you can spoil him.
